    Hmm, does the bike roll with the clutch in?

    Then that means the transmission spins freely so its either primary drive from crankshaft to clutch basket or motor itself. Does it start with the clutch pulled in?

    I'm not sure how the transmission spins freely but the shifter also is jammed, to be honest. I wonder if the shift mechanism could have locked up and caused all the smoke and shut the engine off? I'm not too sure how it all works, to be honest.

    I can't start the bike as it will only start in neutral and I can't get the bike to shift into neutral. I think it was in either 4th or 5th when it exploded.

    Put the kickstand up and pull the clutch in to try n start in gear.

    EDIT- its highly possible something happened to the rotating assembly of the motor in the bottom end that took out the shift drum / shift fork(s) in the transmission.

    Kickstand doesn’t do anything, the kickstand safety switch was disconnected anyways. It has to be in neutral.

    Ahh hmm, jumper the kickstand switch then to make it appear the stand is up? Theres probably also an access port on one side of the motor to access the a crank bolt that you could reach in with a socket and try to spin the motor.

    Either way, something catastrophic happened inside. *cry*

    Oh I meant I disconnected the kickstand safety switch so I could start it with the stand up or down, mainly so I could start the engine with the bike on the center stand and rock it forward off the stand and release the clutch and ride away. :D

    The access port is seized solid, I couldn’t get it out when adjusting my valves so I had to find TDC by putting the bike in 6th gear and turning the wheel.

    BOOOOoooooooo! Sucky sucky..

    Sorry to hear, Man.

    I did read some comments and I'm not sure if I'd try to start it (me anyway) That said.. I would pull the spark plugs to take compression out of the piston/head and see if it will roll with the clutch engaged/disengaged., and even if the engine will move at all. just a quick thought.

    Wishin' you the best, Yo.

    So you guys got me super curious so I went to my parents' house to get the bike. While I was there I was able to get the bike into neutral, though the bike still would not roll, but it's completely locked. Even with the clutch in the engine won't crank. Something seized up bad.

    I didn't want to drive my truck since I don't have a mirror on it (thanks garbage truck) but I was too curious. :D

    That's a bummer. Sucks for sure.


    However, we are still on TW, so in that tradition: Part out?

    Ok, this pretty much sells me on the Super Tenere. (As if I weren't already 100% sold...) This guy has had it for 10 years in Australia and runs it in stuff worse than I ever plan to. He also does a couple 0-60 pulls. Wow. Way faster than I'll ever ever EVER need. :bikewheelie2:

    All good, it might be a fun adventure trying to remove and tear down the engine?

    I kind of want to try making a video about it. Maybe get a few free clicks from all this. :p

    I am still not sure what I want to do. I'm planning on pulling the engine out soon to see what happened, and I kind of feel like if I'm going through all that then I should just buy another engine and keep the bike running. On the other hand, there's the temptation to get something newer with ABS. Either way the amount of labor is about the same whether I replace the engine/transmission or go through with parting the whole bike out.

    For the short term I'll just ride the KTM. I've been needing to put more miles on it to get through break in, anyways.

    Haha yeah it's why most bikes are too painfully cramped for me, but on the flip side, my long legs came in handy for waddling the Versys up the driveway tonight!
